Redmi Note 8 Pro Sales exceeds 300,000 units on First Day
Last week, Xiaomi introducedÂ the Redmi Note 8 Pro with a 64 MP main camera. The smartphone arrived on the shelve this week and it already smashed the brandâ€™s record for the first sale – it pushed over 300,000 phones in its first day on the market.
Trumps Redmi Note 7 Record
For comparison, the predecessor Redmi Note 7 saw â€œonlyâ€ 100,000 phones sales on the first day, even if they sold in under 10 minutes.
TheÂ Redmi Note 8 Pro is truly an amazing phone – the camera is one thing, but it also has Helio G90T chipset, octa-core CPU, 18W fast-charging for the 4,500 mAh battery and pretty much everything else you might want from a phone that costs CNY1,399 (thatâ€™s $200 or â‚¬180).
If that is too much, Redmi is offering also a regularÂ Note 8Â with a 48 MP camera sensor, Snapdragon 665 chipset, and 18W fast-charging as well. It starts at CNY999, which translates to $140 or â‚¬125.
Both phones are currently sold only in China – Xiaomi India director Manu Kumar Jain announced the Pro version will hit India and other global markets at least eight weeks after the official launch, masking it behind the slogan â€œ8 weeks for the Note 8â€.
